Review: A Lunch Stop at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in Epcot’s France

Time to head to my favorite French bakery this side of Paris — Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie! (I know we’ve been here a lot lately, but there’s SO much to tell you about!)

The bakery relocated to the back of Epcot’s France Pavilion last year, and gained quite a bit of real estate in the process. And it’s a good thing — because it has continued to grow in popularity through the years.

Anyway, I sampled a pastry there last Fall that I’ve returned for time and time again…and it’s finally time to tell you about it! At first glance you might be unimpressed…but ohmigosh as soon as you try it you’ll be a convert! Let’s goooooo!
